How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Turn Off Power

    Start by turning off the power to your outlet. Then remove the cover plate.

  2. Insert

    Insert the new cover plate over the light switch.

  3. Secure

    Secure it back in place by putting in the screws, then enjoy.

How It Works

Power prongs connect to the side screw terminals on your existing outlet. Installs in a matter of seconds with no wires or batteries, and uses the electricity normally used to power your home with limited extra costs. The outlet screws provide the power while the power prongs draw the power and in some cases, the charger snaps into place.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Life Span

    The lifespan of the LED lights is up to 25 years before you start to see the lights dim.

  2. Cost

    The cost of the actual use is contingent upon how often you use them and what your local cost of power is. Their average says ten cents per year but naturally if you set it to automatic it might be using power more often than if you leave it off except on rare occasions.

How the Guide Light Works

Their Guidelight is one of the more automatic units you can buy. The amount of light it puts out will increase or decrease based on how much light is in your room. So, if your room is completely dark, the lights will be at their brightest whereas they will turn off completely if your room has a lot of light. The threshold at which they turn off entirely is a bit high for some rooms or hallways based on where they are located. As of late, there is no option to adjust this but perhaps it will be added in the future, according to the company. Contingent upon where you are located, the lights should go off during the day when there is natural sunlight in the room.

Even if they do not turn off entirely and stay on all the time, they will still last up to 15 years using the same amount of energy/cost.

Compatibility for Switchlight

The Snap Power product is compatible with any single gang or single pole light switches. So this means it is installed over a single light switch and will work in any area where a single light switch controls all of your overhead lights. Perfect for bedrooms or bathrooms with a single light switch controlling overhead lights, they are not meant for areas like hallways with two or more controls. Note that in these areas, the light switches can sometimes be installed upside down which means the lights shine up, not down. You will not find them working in areas with three or more switches controlling the same lights.

Unfortunately they will not work in areas where there is a dimmer switch, or motion sensing light switch. They lack the screw terminals for this.

Issues

  • Led

    You cannot replace the LED bulbs in any of these cover plates with regular LED bulbs. So, in 15-25 years when they stop working, they will just stop and you won't be able to replace the bulbs. On that note, the color temperature for these bulbs is a soft warm white.

Chargers

If you invest in the Snap Power Chargers, rest assured that any device using a standard USB can use it to charge. These chargers are meant to last about ten years each. They also have surge protection built in. Obviously charge time is based on unit. IPhone 6, for example, takes two hours to fully charge while an iPad Air takes 8 hours to fully charge. At this time there is only one port for charging, because more than one would cause the cover plate to look quite large and over sized whereas now it blends in seamlessly.
